OUR MISSION

The Grossman Lab explores the ways in which we can better manage legume-rhizobia relationships to enhance soil health, with the ultimate goal of developing sustainable and resilient food production systems.

We strive to ethically co-create and share scientific understanding by working with a wide range of community partners and valuing all forms of knowledge.

We mentor future changemakers by facilitating community-based learning in classroom and research settings.

We aim to learn with integrity, challenge our assumptions, and create respectful and safe spaces for a diversity of people and ideas.

NUESTRA MISIÓN

El Laboritorio de Grossman explora las formas en que podemos manejar la relación entre leguminosas y rizobios para enriquecer la salud de suelo, con la meta principal de desarrollar sistemas de producción alimenticios sostenibles y resilientes.

Nos esforzamos por co-crear, éticamente, entendimiento científico y compartir con un amplio rango de socios comunitarios, valorando todo tipo de conocimiento.

Orientamos a futuros hacedores de cambio, al facilitar el aprendizaje basado en comunidad, tanto en el contexto del aula como de investigación.

Aspiramos aprender con integridad, desafiar nuestras suposiciones y crear espacios seguros y de respeto para la diversidad de personas e ideas.
